  1. Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath Limited numbered edition reissue on 160 gm vinyl with additional 7" single.
  2. Status Quo - Dog of Two Head LP, another duplicate from my mate's donated collection. Jumps on Gerdundula
  3. My Exposure uses the jumper method. Much better than dip switches but it does mean opening up the case to change the load.
  4. Led Zeppelin - III LP, UK pressing This one came from a collection kindly donated to me by a friend when he decided to go all digital. My other copy is a US pressing, and I'm thinking they sound quite different. I must get round to a side by side comparison. Can't find this variant on Discogs though
  5. Yellow Magic Orchestra - Yellow Magic Orchestra LP - weirdly the A-side is second pressing and the B-side is first pressing according to the matrices.
  6. Fairport Convention - Angel Delight LP, first pressing. Seventh album I ever bought and has been played to death. First gig I ever attended was them at the Fairfield Halls, Croydon on this tour. Actually it might have been the Babbacombe Lee tour now I come to think about it.
  7. OK, my point is the theory not the execution, i.e. that the skating force is not caused by the offset but by the overhang. I've always worked on the theory that the offset causes a turning moment. There's more to it than that, but I found the videos illuminating. The Wallyskater is an interesting tool that I hadn't come across until today. WallySkater | WAM Engineering LLC WallyTools Analog Setup Tools (wallyanalog.com)
  8. Well I thought I knew what I was talking about - always a false assumption Everything You Know About Skating Is Wrong! | Analog Planet Fascinating, although not a practical help.
  9. The Doobies were always teetering on the edge of my soft rock threshold. I can admire the class musicianship, but that album is not within my personal taste boundaries. Mind you, as I have found out at many a bake-off, my taste is not necessarily all that popular
  10. The Doobie Brothers - One Step Closer LP Oh dear, what became of the band that made The Captain and Me? Soft rock/funk at its softest
  11. Creedence Clearwater Revival - Bayou Country LP, Analogue Productions 180 gm Kevin Gray / Steve Hoffman remaster. Lovely sounding this one
  12. You'd die with a smile on your face though
  13. C.C.S. - The Best of C.C.S. LP, only UK pressing
  14. Curved Air - Second Album LP, first pressing.
